The Cleveland Cavaliers are 5-6 in January and LeBron James isn't happy about it. After losing to a shorthanded Pelicans team Monday night, James went on an expletive-filled rant, essentially demanding the Cavaliers make a move for a "f***ing playmaker."

“It’s like when you don’t have bodies. It’s tough,” James said, via ESPN. “The f***ing grind of the regular season. We’re a top-heavy team. We have a top-heavy team. We top-heavy as s***. It’s me, [Kyrie Irving], [Kevin Love]. It’s top-heavy.”

Now on Tuesday, LeBron is channeling his inner Donald Trump (whom he actually didn't support, for what it's worth) on Twitter, saying he's not mad at Cavs management, but "in order to repeat" as champions they probably need to find another playmaker.

"If that's what we wanna do," James added.

Clearly, LeBron is sending a message to the Cavaliers, although he's aware they don't have much to offer another team without parting with a Love or Irving.

"We need a f***king playmaker," James said, via Cleveland.com. "I'm not saying you can just go find one, like you can go outside and see trees. I didn't say that (to Griffin)."

Some NBA experts think LeBron is going public to try and get Cavs GM David Griffin to trade for Dwyane Wade or Carmelo Anthony.

About two weeks ago the Cavs traded with Atlanta for Kyle Korver, who's one of the best 3-point shooters in the league.
